LOOK at these photos I just scanned in!


I miss these b/w photo booths. Anyone know where any are now? They would totally have the black and white ones — the color ones make everyone and anyone look Horrible!!

So here is Chris and I AFTER dancing our butts off at the B-52s concert Dec. 13, 1989. Yes, my hair stayed up ALL night except for one little piece that Chris had to keep spraying back into place at the very top. He had a tiny bottle of hairspray in his Purse. Jenny did my hair with a styrofoam cone and 4.5 bottles of AquaNet (sorry for that one Ozone hole I am responsible for over Denton).

Riding down to the Bronco Bowl (RIP!) I had to sit with my head laying sideways on the back seat because my hair wouldn’t fit in the car otherwise. Chris and Chip (not pictured here unfortunately) were dressed in the craziest ’60s minidresses with TONS of makeup and cropped hairstyles.

As we were walking to our seats, some guy said: “You’re a Goddess and don’t let anyone ever tell you otherwise.” (See how long I hang on to a great praise like that — almost TWENTY years!)

I wanted to RUN after him! If I had of caught him, I am sure I would be a divorced mom dealing with a gay ex-husband!! Thank GOD I didn’t run after him!! tee hee

Chris & Chip? Have anything to add?

Cinematic TitanicI have done some cool things over my years of being a publicist — spent the day talking about art with Martin Mull, soaked up stories of old Hollywood with Carol Channing, ate donuts and went bowling with Ron Jeremy , but I don’t think any compare with the night that the Cinematic Titanic (the former Mystery Science Theater 3000) guys made me into a riff at their live show. Cinematic Titanic is comprised of Joel Hodgson, Mary Jo Pehl, Trace Beaulieu, Frank Conniff, and J. Elvis Weinstein.

I had the privilege of doing publicity for their show on April 26 for the USA Film Festival. They are Very humble and modest about their success and popularity. They are all the absolute most friendly, gracious, and nicest people I have met in the film industry in a long time. I had quite the time keeping up with all of the publicity. Luckily, someone did it for me. (Thanks Hugh at Deep Ape!)

Back to my story about my unforgettable moment:

During their live riffing on Roger Corman’s “The Wasp Woman,” Joel said something like: “This isn’t a lab; it’s a Kelly Kitchen.” That was for ME!!!! They talked the night before about adding my name to the riffing. Frank said they should do it like Al Hirschfeld’s Ninas. “Can you count how many times we say Kelly Kitchens?” I had NO idea they were actually going to do it though!! Did anyone else catch it? What a way to be immortalized!!!

We (referring to my husband and other fans) are scheming ways to get them to come back and do more shows. They definitely need to tour with this show!

My favorite line of the night: “Oh look he’s Mr. Know-it-all even when no one is around.”

So, if you are game, let’s work together to get them back to Dallas and to take this show on the road!!

Can’t pass this up

“Carpoolers”

October 2, 2007

 

I hope people (more than Mark and I) watched this ultra-clever new show tonight. It came on after “Cavemen,” which, yes, I was looking forward to (I just LOVE those Geico commercials). But while “Cavemen” fell short, I just left it on to see what “Carpoolers” was all about. And it had me at the sing-a-long of “I’m All Out of Love….” WHY do we ALL know ALL the words to bad songs by Air Supply?? But we do. Go ahead…. admit it. You do to.”Carpoolers” had so many laughs in it even the 2nd time around…. Well, I recorded it for Mark and had to watch it again with my husband, now didn’t I!?! All of the characters are very well defined almost immediately. My favorite was Aubrey (Jerry Minor); he was so low-key and even and hysterical. And Mark said: “I have a feeling that will be me in a couple of years.”I just hope that the people who make decisions about what to keep and what to let go DEFINITELY keep this one!Check out the website: http://abc.go.com/primetime/carpoolers/index or http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0928410/
